    That’s really great. Thanks again to all the fine WSB Forum folks who organized it and best wishes for speedy “recovery” to the Key & Lock Shop!

    catlbob – i don’t usually associate bacon cheeseburgers with weight loss – LOL! Glad to hear the good reviews are still coming in for Zippy’s. Will get there soon!

    in reply to: Donuts — where to buy 2 dozen #623752

    Any of the grocery stores have ’em, if you get there early enough to scarf up 2 dozen. I think QFC’s (at Westwood Village) are the best. The Original Bakery just around the corner from the Fauntleroy ferry dock has good donuts, too, but I’m not sure what time they open. Then there’s Krispy Kreme (yuck for me) on 1st Ave near the stadiums if you’re headed in that direction.

    We also stopped by today after they had closed early – had a short chat with the owner who was very friendly, offered us a menu, etc. – I got the feeling it was one of those “mixed blessings” – great to have all the business, hard to manage it. We will be back and support them – seems to be a huge need (or more accurately, desire) for some decent burgers in WS!!!

    I hope they read your message Ken – good advice for planning ahead.

    Staples definitely does. Many schools/PTSAs have a fundraising plan where they take them to recycle and get a little $$ in return.

    Also, I recently learned that Office Max has refillable cartridges. I think there are certain types that are eligible, but you just bring your empty black ink cartridge in and they will refill it for about $5 less than a new one.

    Ama Ama has food & drink specials for happy hour, but it ends at 6pm. Sliders for $3! Oysters for .50! Cheap drinks!

    I use Yellow Cab – you can call ahead of time for a “time call” to request a specific time for pickup. They are very reliable in the morning, not so much during the day. From Gatewood Hill, fare is about $27 plus tip.

    I also use Seattle City Car, they are very prompt as well. $35 plus tip. seattlecitycar.com

    We stopped in for the first time this afternoon – same vibe as “k” reports, but on a cloudy & rainy Sunday afternoon. The bar itself is beautiful (amazing woodwork) and we thoroughly enjoyed it – will look forward to a warm evening out on the patio (warm evening – someday?).

    I just watched an old Frasier episode on a flight and I’m pretty sure it was Meg Tilly guest starring as a “loose woman” Frasier picks up in a bar – a hilarious episode! Guess she is still working (at least as of 5ish years ago??!!)

    It is a great place (coconut mini cupcakes .. I can never resist) and the owners are great community supporters. I have always found a comfortable spot there, whether by myself to get some work done, with one or two others for a social gathering, or 5-6 people for a meeting.

    To make it even more complicated, I think the official name is Coffee To a Tea … with Sugar and then the baking part of it is Sugar Rush Baking Co. But whatever … we call it CTAT!

    in reply to: did you dine out for life? #622915

    add
    Participant

    OK, so is this about wine/martini bars, cigar/cigarette smoking, or dine for life? I think I could have comments on any of ’em, as follows:

    I was intrigued to see the idea of a ginger cosmo at Buddha Ruska – I’m not a big Thai fan, but that would be enough to get me in the place.

    I smoked cigarettes for about 12 years, have quit for 20, but I have to admit after a long/fun night out, if the opportunity presents itself, I sometimes have a few – what, hits? drags? puffs? – of a cigar, cuz it seems kinda fun and keeps me away from cigarettes. It doesn’t make me want to smoke again.

    And, I love the idea of the wine/martini bar and promise to be a patron if you guys make it happen! :)

    spookbrian, you got it goin on. That’s basically what American Idol has turned into (which is fine by me) – great exposure for some really talented people. And in the end, they are often glad they didn’t win because then they have a lot more control over the near-term future of their careers (see: Daughtry).

    BTW, LOL on the bad teeth and tattoo thing. My husband called that one a long time ago!!!

    And Jan – is it really sunny in WS??? I’m in England where it’s like typical Seattle – cloudy and cool. Sigh.

    I have never seen anyone tip – I always thought that it was just a service that was provided. I think I’ll check with the Customer Service desk and ask what’s customary next time I’m at the TW.

    Seattle Parks & Rec posts volunteer “work parties” on their website practically every weekend – last time I checked there were opportunities at Lincoln Park, Camp Long, and I think one other WS location.

    Just a note on Durgin Park – we went to Boston a few years ago and the kids were all excited about going there because they thought it was hilarious that the waiters would be rude. Well, we actually had a very nice waiter and one tagging along, in training. The kids were bummed. I mentioned to the waiter on the way out that the kids were a little disappointed that he wasn’t rude. So he took one look at my kids, snarled, and barked, “get outta here you little brats!”. They loved it!!!

    Aim – a few weeks ago you mentioned that you would be interested in sewing lessons. My friend is just starting a new business here in WS, offering classes/camps and “studio” time for all kinds of sewing projects. Her website is http://www.makeitworkshop.com. I’m not sure if the class schedule is posted yet, but it should be any day now!

    She promised me she could teach me how to make roman shades (and I’m a non-sewer), so I’m pretty excited!

    I hope it is OK to post this?

    I just found out that Swedish Physicians/Pediatrics on California in the Admiral area is also a drop-off location, if that’s more convenient. Thanks again!

    Jen, if you don’t get any takers, please consider donating to Westside Baby (www.westsidebaby.org). They are always in need of good car seats. They work with social service providers in West Seattle and White Center to provide baby items, clothes, and DIAPERS to families in need here locally. They’re located in White Center but have drop-off points in WS (West Seattle Kids, Fauntleroy Y and maybe one or two more?). Thanks!

    It is offered at every public school in the fall, the deadline for applying is usually October 1. I’m pretty sure it starts in 1st grade. Ask your school’s principal or secretary for more info. If your application is accepted your child will be scheduled for , which is held at the school. A warning: testing for the younger ones (grades 1-3, I believe) is done in groups and is mostly verbal. For some kids that’s a hindrance.

    Michael Johns is out because, to quote my husb, “he’s old and he’s married and he doesn’t get the teenybopper vote”.

    I think that’s kinda true. With that criteria, along with the tattoos, Carly will be the next to go!!!
